How I Stick to My Fitness + Wellness Routine

Cardio
Fitness
Recovery
Beauty
Salon
Dance

One of my resolutions for 2019 was to focus on being healthy and taking care of myself. For me, that meant drinking lots of water, getting a good 7-8 hours of sleep every day, making healthy choices, and having a regular workout routine. If you're like me, you may find that sticking to one kind of fitness routine can get boring and repetitive, which can lead to taking long breaks or worse abandoning it altogether.

Since I love trying new and different ways to workout, the MINDBODY app came to my rescue! With so many fitness studios around me to discover, it’s also a huge plus that I can keep up with my routine even when traveling by booking classes wherever I go! 

The app takes away the hassle of figuring out schedules, pricing, and the process of booking classes at individual studios. And it's not just fitness – you can also explore hundreds of beauty, spa, and wellness centers in your area.

From a cardio dance class to cryotherapy, let me take you through a few experiences I’ve discovered through the MINDBODY app

BKBX BOSTON

What I Booked: Skills - Joint Effort 

Offering workout routines that are adventurous and fun, I decided to try out BKBX – a one-of-a-kind adventurous sports training studio. I attended the skills-based training class and loved that they turn exercise into a game, making it so much more exciting and effective.

305 FITNESS

What I Booked: CARDIO

Nothing motivates me more than dancing. So, I was really looking forward to trying out the 305 Fitness cardio dance class and boy did I have fun. One hour of high-intensity dance moves that were easy to follow while a live DJ blasted some sick beats made this my favorite workout!

BKBX BOSTON

What I Booked: Cryotherapy 

When I found out that the BKBX recovery room offers cryotherapy, I knew I had to come back and give it a try. It was a chilling experience, to say the least! Don’t know what cryotherapy is? To give you an idea, it means standing naked in a chamber where the temperature drops to -240 degree Fahrenheit for three minutes. You might be asking, why would I do that to myself? It felt great after a challenging workout, although my body was numb for a few minutes.

EXHALE BOSTON

What I Booked: Exhale HIIT 

This non-stop 30-minute high-intensity training class was the perfect way to tone and strengthen my body. It was an exhilarating workout, and I came out stronger from it. I’m even thinking of going back to take the famous Exhale Barre class – my body is ready for it.

What I Booked: Sports Pedicure 

It’s not all about fitness and training – taking care of your body is also part of a healthy lifestyle. So, after a grueling class, I treated myself to a Sports Pedicure at Exhale Spa. It was therapeutic and left me with two happy feet!

DEIFY LASER & BEAUTY LOUNGE

What I Booked: Bombshell Blowout 

On a surprise pre-birthday trip to New York City, I found myself in need for some TLC, and the MINDBODY app delivered. I browsed through several hair salons in the area and quickly booked my appointment to be ready for a night out with my squad!

What Are the Benefits of an Online Gym Membership?

That’s something I never expected to hear. Think about it: we join gyms and studios because of their equipment, instructors, space, community (and AC, of course). But who’s to say we can’t get all that—or at least most of it—with virtual and online classes, too? In this new wave of wellness, we’re all switching up our fitness routines as we switch up our everyday schedules and habits. It’s not just in-studio or at-home anymore. It’s in-studio, at-home, at the park, beach, parking lot, rooftop...virtual, hybrid, Instagram Live, online, on-demand, and so much more. As we’re adapting, adjusting, finding our groove, etc., online gym memberships enter the frayHas a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? 

So, why should we care about online gym memberships? 

There are tons of benefits to an online gym membership, especially right now.

Let’s break this down: 

1. Scheduling convenience 

A virtual/online gym fitness membership is a monthly subscription that gives you access to tons of live stream fitness classes you can take anywhere, from studios across the globe. These fitness studios offer tons of at-home workouts, group exercise, and one-on-one training sessions to choose from, no matter your exercise program or fitness level. With so many options, it’s easy to find one that fits your schedule. Whether you want to fit in a morning flow before work, combat that afternoon slump with some cardio, squeeze in some strength training before dinner, or wind down with an evening barre class, you can pick and choose classes to fit your fitness routine. 

2. Minimizing exposure to COVID-19 

And because they’re online, you can take these classes from the comfort of your home (or wherever you are), thus minimizing your exposure to COVID-19 and eliminating your commute to the gym or studio. By now, many of us have our designated “workout spot,” whether it’s an actual weight room, a quick scooch of the coffee table, or a grassy area in the backyard. Maybe you’re comfortable here... maybe you’ve even learned to love it.  

With an online gym membership, you can stay in your safe space/comfy workout spot. Or, you can go somewhere new (local park, beach spot, a different area of the house, you know). You can access these virtual, live stream fitness classes from any device, so you can prop up your phone, laptop, or tablet wherever you want to go, or roll out your mat in front of the big screen TV in your living room. 

3. Variety 

We all have our favorite, go-to workouts. But sometimes, it feels good to switch it up (especially right now). Working from home all day, many of us are craving some variety and excitement, and an online gym membership can definitely help with that. According to our recent poll about COVID’s effect on our fitness routines, 64% of you have tried new online workouts since the start of the pandemic—I know I have. Maybe it’s because trying new things is easier in the comfort of our homes, maybe we’re finally able to try some classes we normally can’t find locally, or maybe we’re all just bored out of our minds...I don’t know. But I’m excited about it.  

With an online gym membership, you can get that spice you’re looking for easily. Start out your Monday by hitting some HIIT, ease your sore muscles with some Restorative Yoga, and end the week with some dance cardio to pretend you’re at the club. The world is yours.

4. Working out without a commute 

My favorite part? No commute. There are literally no more excuses when it comes to skipping workouts. No traffic, no schedule conflicts, no fear of returning to the studio. You don’t even have to worry about packing a gym bag with a change of clothes and shower supplies or prepping a snack or protein shake to bring to work. Just shut your computer, throw on some leggings, and get to work. 

5. Community 

Community—the element of online fitness memberships we don’t often think of. When we go into studios, we understand the beauty of a fitness community. We’re greeted by our instructors, we chat with others in the class, and we all sweat together and encourage each other throughout. But working out at home is different... or is it?  

We can do workouts on our own at home all we want, but we’re definitely going to miss out on the community aspect we all know and love. But, with live stream classes, we can create a different kind of community. The beauty of it? It’s not just your neighbors anymore. Anyone with an online fitness membership can join these classes, regardless of where they’re located in relation to the studio, so you can be working out alongside people from all over the world—now that’s something I can get behind.
